Posted April 17 '04: Merry November recorded what will become their second album on April 7-12 at Protofon. When this album will be released is still unknown. The songs sound slightly different from their debut, with a somewhat lighter and more playful and varied approach to each song. The listener might be up for a surprise or two, with the band moving into genres you wouldn't expect. But this does not mean they have left everything behind since last time. The songs are still dark, and they are still blue. The music is still based around Andreas' and Charlotte's lovely voices, and it's still rather quietly performed. Tom Daniel (bass/drums) has replaced their former backing trio, giving the music a different rhythmic feel. The picture is from the studio, and shows Andreas, Charlotte, and Tom Daniel.
Posted January 4 '04: Merry November will be released in the US: Their Racing Junior-album "I'll Keep You Here" will be distributed by Nail, and an LP-version will be released by Autonomy. The dates are not set.
